CAST & CREW
From movies like DDLJ, Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, and so many others, Bollywood has always been inclined to show casting movies of the romance genre. Jigariyaa just followed the trend. A tale is written in old fashion style still strikes a chord in you as it is based on real life events.
The story moves around Shyamlal and Radhika. Stereotyped as a love story written in olden times where the intercast and love marriages are not accepted, the story serves the same in a different platter. Hailing from different backgrounds and very different from each other, these people meet in Agra and fall in love. The twists happen when the families are against their marriage, and they have to separate.
Whether we like it or not Bollywood pays heed to romantic movies. Though the director tried using the love tales concept to get into this genre, he does not seem to have gone with it well. The movie contained much of the stereotyped dialogues that do not work in days of this era.
The soulful music is one reason you might considering the movie. The song Rang Rang de has come with great cinematography. Surely the poetry part that the hero is involved in keeps you engaged throughout. For a movie with low budget, the movie has kept up its promise and has tended to bring a uniqueness of its own.
The sparkling chemistry between the duo is worth an applause. Ketan Singh is the show stealer. He keeps the audience entertained throughout with his witty comments.
The senior actors like Virendra Saxena and Natasha Rastogi kept to their fame and did great work on the screen. While Virendra played the hero's father and did work well to it Natasha's role was much of what she has already done in her previous movie Ishaqzaade but, this time, she does it with more poise.
A generalized love story with many cliches and an extended runtime is the crux of this movie. Watching it or not is total upon the audience's interests.
